dedicated 

TO THE MEMBERS OF 

THE CLASS WHO HAVE 

BEEN CALLED INTO SERVICE 




TO THE CLASS OF 1951 



I wish for each one of you a successful career as a teacher. The degree you receive from 
our college admits you to a great profession in which there is opportunity for a life of service. 
Because it is a life of service it can be filled with real happiness and values which cannot be 
measured by price. 

This joy in living I wish for you. It will come, if you keep by self-discipline your living 
in accord with real values and act always in loyalty to the principles and ideals which never 
change. 

May you be successful as teachers, and happy in everything you do.

Each year a mob of buoyant youth invades 
the campus grounds to be shown the way to 
knowledge. The freshmen, or Idols of the 
Tribe, meet their limitations simply be- 
cause-- they are human beings and are sub- 
ject to the temptations of a less confining 
life. The sophomores return with renewed 
efforts to master the more demanding subject 
matter, but the Idols of the Den reveal that 
they, too, have limitations as individuals. 
The Idols of the Market Place, or place of 
exchange, was the terrace the juniors 
triumphantly gained, only to realize the dif- 
ficulties encountered at this level in reach- 
ing precision and "exact knowledge of truth". 
The limitations were due to the language

difficulties, for it certainly is the year edu- 
cational terminology must be conquered. 
Finally, the highest level is reached with all 
but bands playing as the seniors enter the 
Idols of the Theater, or show place. This 
phase in learning is hindered by attempts to 
form a philosophy of education. 

Through these obstacles we have been 
guided by the faculty, Plato's guardians. Now 
we are faced with the blinding light of the 
world and the future terraces of life. 

"For as the earth bringeth forth her bud, 
and as the garden causeth the things that are 
sown in it to spring forth; 

Thou shalt raise up the foundations of 
many generations. " (Isaiah)

"From the cave of ignorance we have travelled upward toward the 
light; our eyes were dazzled. Now we gaze upon the light of the moon and the stars 
and the spangled heaven . . . and when we remember our old habitation and the 
wisdom of the den and our fellow-prisoners, we felicitate ourselves on the changes, 
and pity them. " 

Plato 

Looking back over the terraces 

Can it be that these men and women who are to don their caps and gowns today are the 
same group who in September, 1947, entered the doors of S. T. C. ? The fusion which has grad- 
ually been taking place from that day to this incorporates a multi-faceted set of experiences. I 
deny that reminiscence is for old age alone. Let us together peer back over the road we have 
traveled, making a mental addition here and there for those personal enrichments which came 
our way. 

From that first day on which we set out on our college career, through the four some- 
times gay, sometimes serious years, we have left the impression, wherever we have brushed, of 
skepticism and disturbance. With the bestowal of degrees on our commencement day, we de- 
part as the "last of the conquerors" -- the group which even in its eventual obscurity in the 
field of the world will be remembered here. We have been stubborn, but dynamic; we have 
been naive, but honest. We shall look back on those who helped us along the road with a unani- 
mous vote of thanks for their patience and understanding, for their revealing to us the light of 
truth that we may seek after it always. 

As freshmen, we were the usual disconcerting melee of faces, but as we gYew in knowl- 
edge of each other through such functions as our well-remembered reception, the exhausting 
trek to Greylock, the exposure to a new type of teaching and new subject matter, which con- 
fused us all alike and together, our individualism emerged and was destined to live a long life. 
That first year was quickly put behind us. Groups and fond couples had about the campus, and 
reluctant adieus were said until the summer recess should be over. 

24 



In September we picked up our loose ends and continued along the way. As sophomores, 
we made a name for ourselves in various ways -- the award-winning stunt night which proved 
the value of cooperation, our part in "Candlelight, " and our star performers in "H. M. S. Pina- 
fore. " We had a great basketball team that year, one which was soon to win us the coveted 
Conference championship. A healthy spirit showed itself in our class, as in the entire college. 
We looked forward anxiously to the promise offered by the prospect of professional training soon 
to be upon us. 

Yes, it was only last year when we laid aside personalities as much as possible and em- 
barked on the adventure of learning how to be worthy members of our profession. Methods of 
teaching were our subject matter; the practice of teaching our evernearing goal. With a basket- 
ball pennant to the credit of the college and a great deal of pride in ourselves, we penned the 
finis of another chapter in our college career. 

This last year -- the final step of the terraces — now faced us. We found a new thing in 
our senior year, the realization that we are more than just individuals, that we are a part of a 
whole. More unified than ever before in our ideals, we were forced to accept the prospect of 
losing some of our members to the service of our country. A new sobriety overshadowed us in 
our work as the world trembled with the threat of an international crisis. We found ourselves 
about to be faced with a decision and a greater challenge than ever before. As individuals to 
the last, we found ourselves asking the unanswerable -- what to do now? If dreams conflicted 
with realities in an attempt to find an answer, again came our willing guides to help us find 
ourselves in the world. 

We close our book of reminiscence now, and each of us has many notes in the margin. 
Each time we travel the road again, it will be with more joy because of what we have earned 
and accomplished. Four years have gone by, but not without dividends for the unsatisfied curi- 
osity of a group whom I shall call the pioneers of 1 951 .

CAP AND GOWN DAY SPEECH 



The members of the graduating class extend their heart-felt thanks to you, the junior class, for 
the honor you have accorded us this day. 

We shall always remember this day as a significant link in a life -long chain of educative ex- 
periences; a link welding the academic past to the pedagogical future. 

For some of us, this chain will be extended in a continuous series of applications of those ideals, 
methods and principles of free thought and free expression which we have learned and excercised here. 
These things are not only an integral part of our teaching, but lie among the foundation stones of 
democracy. So, as teachers, our duty is clear. We must establish these democratic principles in the 
thinking of those learners to whom we have dedicated our lives. Only by remembering this can we 
insure that each link in our chain of experience is as strong as those which preceed it. 

At this college we have made friendships, made contacts, and have tried to demonstrate that 
spirit which makes for the successful, mature adult. These vestments we don today are emblematic 
of the wisdom, skills and values we have learned and adopted here, and remind us that this day is 
not the end of our learning, but merely the completion of a stage of development, demanding intro- 
duction to the next level. 

So with clear vision of our function in the world community, and backed by the courage of our 
convictions, we, the graduating class of 195 1, by the very act of donning these scholarly robes, ac- 
cept our self-appointed task of helping to educate a troubled world.

CLASS HISTORY 



" But I am constant as the northern star, 
Of whose true-fie'd and resting quality 
There is no fellow in the firmament. " 



We are fun and we are quiet; in fact we're a bit like the little man who wasn't there, — 
except that we are always around. We haven't made the headlines nor changed the curriculum 
nor shall we ever set the world on fire, but we have always done our job quietly and, we hope, 
well. 

In September the junior class came back to S.T.C. and realized that it had become a 
minority. We were surrounded by classes twice and even three times as large as we were. We 
soon became so busy with our lesson plans and teaching assignments that we often forgot we 
were members of a class or even members of a school, for that matter. 

Time sped by and exams brought an end to our period at Mark Hopkins. With the resump- 
tion of the Prom in May and for the purchase of our class rings, though we were few in number, 
our enthusiasm and spirit were without bounds. 

With exams to look forward to once more and the end of our junior year ahead of us, we 
peer into the future. It is with confidence that we contemplate becoming seniors, because our 
silent steadfastness has served us well up to this point and we feel sure it will carry us safely 
through our trip as seniors. Though we are few, we are not frail; though we are silent, we are 
not static. Ours is the dynamism of dependability: -- may it stick with us to the endl

CLASS HISTORY 

Dear Nastcee: 

Remember the great day we returned to the college on the hill to greet old friends again 
and join in the never-ending search for knowledge? We were no longer mere freshmen, but 
rather mature young ladies and gentlemen, ready to face any problems, no matter what, and 
CONQUER them. 

Disillusioned, weren't we? 

Nevertheless, we tackled our studies with an unshakeable faith in our ability. We fought 
beside Washington during the Revolution and charged up San Juan Hill with "Teddy". Our deter- 
mined attitude was slowly crushed. We staggered under our burden, and finally just managed to 
crawl through the door in June to a much needed vacation. 

The Sophomore Prom proved to be a wonderful diversion from the drudgery of studies. 
We all enjoyed ourselves, especially when the little boxes of mint chocolates were distributed 
among the couples. Gee, they were goodl 

Before we realized it, the New Year was upon us. We earnestly made New Year's Resolu- 
tions and solemnly swore to keep them, come what may. With the New Year came exams, and 
with exams, what happened to our New Year's Resolutions? Silly Boy! 

By the time April rolled around, we all felt we were accomplished composers and artists. 
Overcome with our talent, many of us planned to leave the college and further our careers 
along these lines. One of our classmates even intended to journey to Arabia to become a camel 
driver. 

With vacation in view, we finished the last lap with flying colors and passed through the 
hallowed portals once more, humming the strains of "So Long, It's Been Good To Know Ya" — 
until next year. 

Sincerely, 

Nancy Hurlbut

FRESHMEN CLASS HISTORY 



"Life is my college. May I graduate well, and earn some honorsl " 

On the twelfth of September, seventy-four exuberant and malleable freshmen 
from all parts of the state entered N. A. S. T.C. Thirty-nine of us came from Berkshire 
County, Eastern Massachusetts sent twenty-seven representatives, and Central Mas- 
sachusetts contributed eight. The upper-class girls found plenty to do in the dormitory, 
with almost half the population consisting of freshmen. Socially we were the headliners 
for the get -acquainted picnic given to us by the student body at Taconic Park. A few 
weeks later we were officially accepted at the Freshman Reception, where the queen of 
the class was picked. On our spare week-ends both girls and boys enjoyed the Berkshire 
country side under the auspices of the W. A. A. Hiking was a wonderful past time until 
cold weather came. Numerous socials were given by us in the Social Hall of the dormi- 
tory and then the Sophomore Prom came around. This dinner -dance gave many of us 
a chance to trip the light fantastic at the Williams Inn at Williamstown. The week be- 
for Christmas the social events came hot and heavy. Many of the clubs gave parties. 
The dorm girls started the festivities with a dance, complete with superior orchestra 
and decorations; many of the freshmen also attended the double -feature celebration of 
basketball game and dormitory all-school party. 

After our return from the Christmas vacation we watched with some temerity the 
approach of our first exams at N. A. S. T. C. , but we survived, and the exams soon be- 
came part of our college memories. There were new tasks, and the adventures of a 
coming semester. All was forgotten when a majority of the class saw the Williams 
College production of Oscar Wilde's "The Importance of Being Earnest". It was then 
our turn to present a successful dramatic attraction by our Drama Club. The play was 
"The Night January Sixteenth", in which numerous freshmen were initiated as "Foot 
Lighters". 

So with eyes bright, heads spinning, we look forward to our sophomore year, when 
we will gain new brilliance.

LIFE IN THE DORM 

5:30 A.M. The radiators are banging as some industrious freshman touches on a 

paper due at 8 A.M. 
6:00 A.M. An alarm ringsl -- Turn it offl -- Turn over 1 -- Go back to sleep. 
7:00 A.M. The somnolent silence is broken by three delightful chimes.- -- a signal 

for some to arise and dress, for others to get twenty -five more minutes 

of sleep. 
7:30 A.M. Breakfast is served. -- Late comers admitted. -- Informal dress. 
7:45-8:00 A.M. Time for a cigarette, surely, and for room cleaning, perhaps. 
8:14 A.M. We're attacked by a group of mad artists charging through the tunnel 

to Mr. Flagg's art class on the third floor. 
10:00 A.M. A memo from Mrs. Bettcher: "Show thy mop to thy floor." 
12:10 Just time for a bridge game before lunch. If you don't know your part- 

ner's hand by the time the bidding is over, you have your signals 

crossed. 
12:30 P.M. Mrs. Bettcher and Miss Underhill get a head start to chow before the 

mob rushes in. 
1:00 P.M. More cards, cigarettes and the latest topics of discussion: -- Men, 

clothes, tests, and repetitionl -- members of the opposite sex. 
1 :30 P. M. Rodeo practice on the second floor. 

3:30 P.M. Roll call at Michael's. 

4:00 P.M. Extension classes from the conservatory of music are held in the living 

room and social hall. 
4:47 P. M. "Will the Freshmen please be quietl " 



34 



LIFE IN THE DORM 

5:00 P.M. A meeting of the higher ups (dorm, council). Purpose: to plan future 

strategy and punish recent offenders. Punishment not standing in the 
corner, not ten lashes, but sweeping the corridors. 

5:30 P.M. A meeting of the Dragon Society will take place in the dining room. 

"Please bring your chop sticks. " 

6:00 P.M. The smoking room is bulging with card players. These girls should read 

Culbertson. 

7:30-9:30 P. M. These hours are to be devoted to the art of applying one's self to 
one's books. 

9:30 P. M. Freedom -- the pause that refreshes. 

10:00 P.M. Inter-room visitation till 10:15 except on Wednesday, the upperc lass- 
men's night out. 

10:30 P. M. The voice of Northern Berkshire should get laryngitis at this time. 

11:00 P. M. The House Patrol check to see that all lights are out. 

11:02 P.M. All's quiet. 

11:03 P.M. The Fire gong signals Fire Chiefs Bailey and Ayres to check each girl 
out as she tries her skill on the fire escape. After everyone has yelled 
"shoes-coat-flashlight" after her name, the Plumb boys may pull down 
their shades and return to their reveries. 

11:20 P.M. The girls in the dorm, have one request: -- we wish the janitors would 

all wear sneakers. 

As we bring this typical Monday to a close, you can plainly see where 

we get out "numerous and varied experiences".

DEAR UNDERGRAD . . . 

It was upon the glorious Sabbath, a spirii came unto me and said: 

"Pray, show and justify to others the educational blessings thou hast reaped these past 
four years, if thou canst" . . . 

To this most solemn induction I lent an eager ear and hastened at once to the muse 

of contemplation in order to discover myself And so the dusty leaves of 

academic learning I unrolled, to hearken to my own voice echoing through time's 
corridors 



'Listen, the voice speaks 
In accents psychological 



As a freshman - "Why fuss about the elementary school child who is 

harmless? ' 
As a sophomore - 'If he doesn't listen, I'll stop acting harmlessly! ' 
As a junior - 'Take heed, the whole child goes to school. ' 

As a senior - 'If he does, I only want a part of him. ' 



In strains musical 



As a freshman - 'I hear music. ' 

As a sophomore - 'Tis discord. ' 

As a junior - 'Again In Unison We stand. * 

As a senior - 'Hallelujah!' 

"The "whole" had rolled off the college "Fairway". Here before me I meticulous- 
ly arranged the evidences to find the "central tendency". Four years amidst the tangled 
boughs of learning had (I was now quite sure of it) wrought a change in the learner. Is 
not this the measureable criterion for the "product-moments" of education? 

I let up, lit up, stretched out my feet and breathed restfully as die glorious 
strains of Sophocles filtered through my consciousness 

"O seed of Atreus, how triumphantly 
Through grief and hardness thou hast freedom found 
With full achievement in this onset crowned!" 



And to you, oh hopeful neophyte, wonder not with revered Aeschylus . . . 

"What end shall fall, 
Or peace or death outsweeping all, 
When night comes and the wrath is past?" 

WitholdJ. Kirmil

FIRST AND 



FOREMOST 



Our educational star has taken on new brillance. From out of the midst of the Class of 
'51 five people have been chosen by the students and faculty of this school to be placed in Who's 
Who in American Colleges and Universities. This is the first time such an honor has befallen 
the school and members of this graduation class were the first to be so honored in the history of 
the school. Congratulations to school and students. 

Foremost, then, in our class, stand the names of these five, Paul Komisar, Barbara Brad- 
ley, William Grady, Theresa Beauchamp and Mark Murray. In qualities of leadership, 
scholastic ability, and school interest these five are foremost and it is this superior quality that 
entered into the minds and hearts of faculty, and fellow students, and now, beyond these borders, 
into the pages of the Who's Who in American Colleges and Universities.

In contrast to the rich harvest that our Varsity Basketball team has reaped in the past, 
the achievements of the 1950 -51 team appear very lean. In the last three years we have an- 
nexed 33 victories and a New England Teachers College Basketball Championship. Our 1 951 
team could add only four victories to this record during a fourteen game schedule, but while 
we may be saddened by this result we are not disheartened, for those that wore the blue and 
gold on the hardwood surface this year gave indications of a brighter future. 



Through their sizzling, scoring punch the "Profs" set a new offensive record at the col- 
lege, averaging 58 points per game. This feat, which was accomplished during a season in 
which Coach James Doran was building for the future, testifies to the ability of the new men 
who received their initial training during the 1950-51 campaign. Actually there were only 
two senior players on the team, Captain Joe Anton and Dunham Haley. Captain Anton was the 
team's top scorer this season as well as inspirational leader, and he can boast of having been 
on the starting five during each of his four years at the col- 
lege. A noteworthy achievement indeed I The other mem- 
bers of the Varsity who were playing for their second year were 
Ed. Lawton, Bill Mumford, Fuad Nassif, and Jack Hillard. 
Great deeds will be expected from next year's team, when these 
men, as well as this year's amazing freshmen, - Earl Hatch, 
Fred Hubbard, Frank Warner, and Wayne Barcomb, - return again

Amato passes from his position as student manager of sports. It will be difficult to find a re- 



placement who will discharge the duties of this job as ably as Steve has during the past three

Varsity Baseball, which was discontinued in 1949, may be revived again at NASTC. 
Bill Harrington and Bob Nagle, both members of the Class of '51, starred for the last Varsity 
Nine, and they will surely do so again during the 1951 season. 




Consistently through the years the Men's Athletic Association has maintained the 
Intramural Sports at the college. MAA members Bernard Beauchamp, Dunham Haley, and 
Paul Komisar have organized and administered the Basketball and Softball Leagues, and our 
class has always been represented in this competition. We have been both active and unusually 
successful in this respect and can claim with reasonable certainty at least three championships. 
During the senior year the class made a determined effort to capture both the Basketball and 
Softball crown, an accomplishment unequalled in the college annals. The class members 
who represented us in intra -mural sports were as follows: 



Joe Anton 
Bernie Beauchamp 
Ben Betti 
Bill Bringan 
Stu Cutler 
Frances Dennett 
Mike DuPuis 
Bill Grady 
Val Therrien 



Bill Harrington 
Harry Hedges
